In the early days of cable television, two brothers set out to better the predominately black community of South Central Los Angeles by establishing the first black-owned cable franchise in the country. Along the way, they are thwarted by the most famous black American politician and the corrupt city council over which he presides. The players in this true story include people as disparate as the world’s richest man and our nation’s first black Supreme Court Justice. In 2012, in our media-as-king land, this story illustrates the corruption of government and how our poorest citizens bear the brunt of that horrible burden.
